Question about Kaito KA1916 Shelf System

Open Question

My turntable on my ka1916 is running slow

I have a Thomas pacconi model tpc-mse-800 and the turntable is dragging. At first I thought irt was the belt and I ordered a new one. The belt was bad as there is a fairly big difference between the new and the old. yet when I replaced it the turntable still runs slow so now im convinced that the motor is the culprit but I can not find a replacemant motor based on the numbers on the motor housing. it is a mabuchi 12 v motor part number# EG-520SD-2F with an rpm range of 130-1520 rpm I sure would appreciate any assistance in getting this thing going again

A similar unit arrived for servicing. In this case, a poor solder job at the point where the red and black wires connect to the motor was the problem.

How can i repair my radio that seems to get no power when i turn it on

Most likely it's a capacitor fault.

Google "Capacitor bulge" and then search Youtube for your make and model to see if anyone has done an instructional video. You'll need to be comfortable dismantling the unit and be able to use a soldering iron. If this isn't you then take it to a repair shop.

Electro Brand model number 9801: I played one record, now when I tried to play another the turntable will not rotate. Could the motor have burned out that easily?

Listen carefully with your ear to the turntable when you move the tone arm towards the record. If you can hear the motor running and the turntable is still stationary then the drive belt from motor to turntable has probably fallen off of broken. Lift the turntable, there's normally a metal clip holding the turntable in place, and locate the drive belt.

The problem is in the motor of the turntable, the regulator is not putting out the correct voltage to the motor, and the circuit is often built into the motor making it impossible to service. The only option is motor replacement.

Rca record player is playing slowed down or sped up

Hi there

this sounds like the belt that drives the turntable itself is slipping you can normally access it by removing the securing clip by the centre spindle and then lift the turntable up and you should be able to see the belt give the belt a good clean with isopropyl alcohol refit and hey presto (if you still get slippage order a replacement belt )

Most likely the grease in the whole system has started to stiffen or the motor is failing. This can be fixed. Try oiling the motor first. If that fails, I'd look at the motor driver IC as the most likely failing part.

Drive Belt on Pioneer PL120-II Turntable

clean the spindle with alcohol and put a single drop of thin oil at the bottom of it
the sticky stuff is the rubber corroding
if the belt is not too stretched , boil it in water with some vinegar for a couple of minutes , if its too bad then replace it
